Location: Gresham, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:2 hours
Fixed bright multicolored light in the NW sky after sunset, looked like a very bright star but seemed too brilliant for the usual star.

On 9/27/2015, at about twilight, my neighbor, who was watching the eclipse, said that we had a UFO and pointed to a bright light fixed in the northwestern sky. The light was very brilliant (for a star) and emitted blue and red colors, very much like a “Diamond in the sky.”

He said that it’s not on any star charts.

I got out my telescope to see it. I located it about 20-30 degrees above the horizon in the northwest and watched it for about an hour. It seemed to set (move) just as any planet or star would as I had to keep adjusting my telescope. It was very brilliant and looked like a colorful fire but I could not discern a shape, just twinkling blue and red colors predominantly. I looked again on 9/28 but did not see it, possibly due to a thin cloud layer. I saw it again tonight, but due to scattered clouds, I did not stay out to observe it longer.
